Reid was in the 2012 recruiting class joining the program with Kittle, Beathard, Ott, and others. Reid discusses how his way to Iowa actually came through wrestling and tells a funny story about meeting the Brands brothers on a wrestling visit. He talks about starting out at D-line and quickly moving to the offensive side of the ball in his first camp and shares his 'Welcome to the Big Ten' moment. After 3 years of grinding and not a lot of movement on the depth chart Reid tried his hand at Long Snapping in the spring of 15' before deciding to transfer that summer. He transferred to Southern Illinois and found success in the stacked Missouri Valley conference for his final 2 years. After football ended he found his way into an internship with Nebraska Football in Strength and Conditioning before deciding that wasn't for him, and after more odd jobs eventually took the leap to joining the military. He talks all about officer candidate school, Ranger school, and his recent first deployment to Africa. Enjoy.
